Google acquired Sparrow, the popular iOS and Mac Email Client

21 July, 2012 Apple



Sparrow CEO Dom Leca announced that they were acquired by Google. Sparrow's 3rd party email clients and apps are very popular on Apple's platforms, and were widely considered to be among the best email UIs available.

Sparrow will continue to be made available for the time being, and current customers will still be given support, but Leca indicated that there will be no new features added to the software from here on out. The good news is that this was a talent acquisition by Google, and Leca and his team will be joining Google's Gmail team to create more elegant and effective email UIs for Gmail, and to better tie together the Gmail experience across all of its many platforms.
